any comments? felt that MUCH can be done... please guide me... thankz
too dark. try a tripod and long exposure or shoot at dusk...
I think it would be better if it were all in focus. Also it's a bit too dark. Maybe if just one person were walking on the bridge would help give the eye somewhere to look. There are a few folks in this shot, but far in the background, so if you had someone up close that might help a bit.
Yep - I agree with Chroix, you should use a tripod and a much longer shutter time, leave the appature relatively closed (f8 or f16) or you'll lose depth of field. I'm guessing, but you'll probably need 20-30s at f16 for this.
I think that unless there's a lot going on behind the bridge that is not visible then there is a bit too much negative space above the bridge.
Oh - one final tim, if you do use a tripod for a long exposure, make sure that the tripod is not in the middle of the span of the bridge - otherwise the tripod and camera will all move (this caught me out on the Millenium bridge in London and wrecked a feew pictures till I remembered) Try to get the shot composed so you can position the tripod near one of the supports of the bridge.
hmm yeah... longer exposure and a tripod. And lower the angle - the dark area on the top is without sense here
agree, too dark, try a lower angle at a different time of the day, it is amazing how shooting at dawn and dusk are so totally different then shooting at day or night
Thankz!~ should lower shutter speed thus increasing exposure right??? thankz people!~
Exactly. I had a play in photoshop with it, you can I think you can improve it quite a lot - mind if I post it to see if you think it's an improvement?
change ISO to 400 or more can be a alternative for improve the photo
uses a digital camera by the way....
still pining for my SLR...... LAck of cash!~ buhuhu
Here's the version I got by a little play in PS - you cuold do much better with it with a little more time and working withthe original.
but sorting the depth of field and getting a sharp image (tripod and long shutter time) mean that going back and shooting again is you're best option (if you can)
